Increase Data Processing Power with Teledyne Controls' New integrated
Data Management Unit (iDMU)
Designed to meet the extensive data monitoring requirements of modern digital aircraft, the
iDMU is Teledyne's new-generation Data Management Unit. Integrating the latest
microcomputer technology, the iDMU delivers increased performance, while significantly
reducing the circuit card count, which results in higher reliability and lower maintenance costs.
Teledyne's iDMU combines multiple functions into a single unit, allowing operators to reduce
weight and power consumption. The unit integrates a data recording function via PC Card
media for QAR/DAR and message data recording. Its enhanced ACMS (Aircraft Condition
Monitoring System) function supports higher-capacity and faster data throughput, therefore
facilitating both aircraft/engine performance monitoring, as well as advanced monitoring of
daily flight operations.
The iDMU features an Ethernet connector which permits high speed data transfer to/from
other Ethernet enabled systems. This facilitates data transmission within an airline's
operations, therefore promoting initiatives for a "Connected Aircraft".
Flexible ACMS Capability
Like all other Teledyne airborne avionics systems, the iDMU is fully user-programmable via
Teledyne's MS Windows-based Application Generation Software (AGS). This software tool
allows operators to easily customize the various elements of their ACMS applications, such
as QAR/DAR output data maps, MCDU screens and enhanced ACMS reports.
Teledyne's iDMU is certified on the Boeing 747-400 and 767-300 aircraft and is available for
both retrofit and forward fit installations. The iDMU is also standard equipment on the
747-8, co-labeled and provided under sub-contract through Rockwell Collins.
